What is this label
I found on my water heater or circuit box?
If the label you found on your appliance or circuit box looks like this
A licensed contractor has done work on your home. If you have trouble
reading the work description or you want to contact the contractor, you
can go to the Minor
Label Program Web site and look up the label.
Minor labels are inexpensive permits for minor electrical and plumbing,
residential and commercial installations. For example, you can use minor
label permits to put in light switches or install residential water heaters.
Licensed contractors buy a "lot" of 10 labels, of which 10 percent
are inspected. Contractors may use the labels for installations anywhere
in the state.
The minor labels were updated in December 2007.
You may have a label that looks a little different than the one shown above.
You should still be able to find the label number and you can enter it into
the minor label database, found at www.MinorLabels.info.
